loving Clowes

still loving him after all these years... but seriously, doesn't anyone bother to read a history book. Comics came from politics and rhetoric. Like in the 17th century or something. It's not even interesting when you try to mix that up with art school. So Dan went to the wrong school, pretty much the end of the story isn't it ? Clowes's genius is in his dead pan caricatures of low brow people. It's not in his writing. 8-ball Comics, excellent drawings, but did it end ? Why don't they make that into a movie ? I remember that 4 page spread of art-school confidential with the poodle haired male drawing class model. Amazing, hysterical and dead-on accurate. Worth a movie ? What if somebody who wanted to be a lawyer went to cooking school ?
